New Democrats (Episode #668H)

KQED 9: Sun, Feb 19, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

President Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in part by capturing the white working class vote in Rust Belt states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin that had regularly swung to the Democratic candidate. Some Democrats are trying to rebuild their base by making better inroads where Trump won voters who had supported Barack Obama twice. That would include blue-collar neighborhoods in Northeast Philadelphia, where an up and coming Democratic Congressman, Brendan Boyle, and his brother, who's a state legislator, see themselves as the future of the party. Jeff Greenfield traveled to Northeast Philadelphia to find out why.

Gold Butte National Monument (Episode #667H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 18, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

During his 8 years in office, former President Obama set aside more than 550 million acres of federal land and water habitat under national monument protection using the 1906 Antiquities Act, far more than any other president. Last December, Obama declared nearly 300, 000 acres of remote and rugged desert in Southeast Nevada as the Gold Butte National Monument. It contains fragile wildlife habitat, culturally and spiritually important sites for Native American tribes, and thousands of ancient rock etchings. While tribes, environmental groups and leaders cheered Obama's decision, some longtime residents disagreed with the declaration and would like to see more state control over Gold Butte and other federal lands. Hari Sreenivasan reports.

Living Together (Episode #666H)

KQED 9: Sun, Feb 12, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

The number of people aged 65 and older in the United States is expected to nearly double by 2050. As Baby Boomers and seniors struggle with the lack of independence and social isolation that often comes with growing older, young people struggle to maintain social ties as they juggle work and family. That's why a growing number of people are choosing to live in intentional intergenerational communities in a housing model known as cohousing that was pioneered in Denmark. PBS NewsHour Weekend Correspondent Saskia de Melker visits two communities - one in Denmark, one in the United States - to see what living in a cohousing community means for residents of different ages.

Business Showdown (Episode #665H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 11, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

American companies have often moved manufacturing plants in search of cheaper labor or easier access to raw materials. But inside the U.S., states find themselves competing with each other to host corporate headquarters or factories and the good paying, white and blue collar jobs they bring. In turn, corporations leverage their position to shop around for the best deals and tax incentives to relocate. NewsHour Weekend Correspondent Christopher Booker reports on this business tug-of-war between states and why one Fortune 100 company, General Electric, left one state for another.

Citizens Watch On Mexican Border (Episode #663H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 4, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

During his first week in office, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to fulfill one of his campaign promises - to build a steep wall along the 2000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. Saying the U.S. government has failed to secure its southwestern border, a group of armed citizens patrols a nearly 400-mile stretch of desert land that separates Arizona from Mexico. The group, Arizona Border Recon, describes itself as a surveillance organization ready to interdict illegal immigrants and illicit drugs entering into the country. But state and federal law enforcement agencies see the group as getting in their way. Nick Schifrin introduces us to the group and its detractors.
